Touching The Void Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Tue, Dec 24, 2013 -- 10:00 PM

Based on the international best-seller by renowned climber Joe Simpson, this program recounts the extraordinary story of a climb Simpson and his climbing partner, Simon Yates, undertook in the Peruvian Andes in 1985. The two ambitious young mountaineers set off to scale the hitherto unclimbed west face of Siula Grande, a remote and treacherous 21,000-foot peak. Starting their descent through a blizzard, Simpson fell and shattered his leg, launching a heroic battle for survival in which both men were faced with life-or-death decisions that tested the human spirit to its limit. Simpson and Yates return to Siula Grande together for the first time to retell their story for the cameras.
